I don't want to get sucked into any lj memes, dammit. Won't! Won't!

Oh, okay. You win.

Ten things I've done that you probably haven't:

Been in a food fight with a Korean mafioso

Successfully taught the indicative, imperative, and subjunctive moods to junior high school students

Given a paper at the Parliament of the World's Religions

Been propped up on a 20-foot-long phallic symbol by drunken Shinto priests

Visited Nelson Mandela's old prison cell on Robben Island

Eaten springbok pie

Read all the unpublished fiction of the poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886-1961)

Hissed the poet Amiri Baraka mid-performance for blatant antisemitism

Read all of the Silmarillion, twice

Made Joyce Carol Oates laugh
